Problem using © character [message #32224] Wed, 12 November 2008 16:37 Go to next message

Hi, I have used this character © in a Feature Descriptor at Provider field.
Problem is that when I go to Help -> About, and I check the details of
my Feature, that character appears like ©.
I have tested such character in a SWT table successfully, so I suspect
the problem is how the Feature Descriptor is managed later.
Have you seen this behavior before? Is it related to PDE? Should I
comment in other group (I don't know who is in charge of get and show
that info in About window)?

Thanks in advance,

Chemi.

As workaround I have found that you can export that string to
plugin.properties file and then it is shown correctly. Problem happens
when such character is used directly in MANIFEST.MF or plugin.xml files.
